Assault – Sidney Hayers (Network)

Assault – Sidney Hayers (Network)

This 1971 British movie had a variety of titles for different territories such as In The Devil’s Garden, Satan’s Playthings, The Creepers and Tower Of Terror. Some of them make little sense and dress things up as a supernatural horror which is quite misleading. “Assault”.. Read More

The Changeling – Peter Medak (Second Sight)

It must have been three decades or so since I last saw 1980 movie The Changeling but memories had never really left from this one and all came flooding back when catching up on its Blu-Ray debut via Second Sight. This is one of the.. Read More
Cannibal Ferox – Umberto Lenzi (Shameless)

Cannibal Ferox – Umberto Lenzi (Shameless)

Banned in 31 countries and the most violent film ever made. Yeah this is the normal sort of hype one encounters in the cinema of so called extremity all the time but Umberto Lenzi’s cannibal gut-muncher of 1981 actually walked the talk derailing anyone who.. Read More
Xtro – Harry Bromley Davenport (Second Sight)

Xtro – Harry Bromley Davenport (Second Sight)

I first heard about Xtro in slightly odd circumstances as my dad had shares in a company that had some involvement in its production. I saw some photos in a trade publication he was sent and boy do I wish I had snapped it up.. Read More
The Mountain Of The Cannibal God – Sergio Martino (Shameless Films)

The Mountain Of The Cannibal God – Sergio Martino (Shameless Films)

It’s back to the infamous 72 film hit-list that were known in a time of mass hysteria as the Video Nasties and Sergio Martino’s The Mountain (Slave, Prisoner) Of The Cannibal God released back in 1978. The Italian cannibal genre may have been short lived.. Read More
eXistenZ – David Cronenberg (101 Films)

eXistenZ – David Cronenberg (101 Films)

A true auteur and one of the great visionary directors of our time, David Cronenberg’s career has been incredibly interesting to say the least. Although his films are really varied in some ways, as we will discover here they are all in the same universe.. Read More
The Gate - Tibor Takács (Vestron Video)

The Gate – Tibor Takács (Vestron Video)

Anyone who used to hunt through the shelves of the old video rental stores in the 80’s will no doubt remember the label and the logo that was Vestron Video. It was their horror films that if you are reading this you have fond memories.. Read More
The Amityville Horror – Stuart Rosenberg (Second Sight)

The Amityville Horror – Stuart Rosenberg (Second Sight)

I guess if you went out Family Fortune’s style and asked the average person on the street to name a haunted house it wouldn’t be long before Amityville popped up. The name is embedded in popular culture, due firstly to the best-selling book written by.. Read More
The Entity - Sidney J. Furie (Eureka)

The Entity – Sidney J. Furie (Eureka)

Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s with a really unhealthy fascination in the supernatural; ghosts, hauntings and things that generally made very loud bumps in the night, meant being really caught between a rock and a hard place. It was the golden age of.. Read More
Stigmata - Rupert Wainwright (Eureka)

Stigmata – Rupert Wainwright (Eureka)

I have fond memories of this as it was actually one of the first of those new-fangled DVD’s I remember picking up. No doubt I was late to the game as I didn’t want to let go of those lovely big hunks of plastic VHS.. Read More
Microwave Massacre – Wayne Berwick (Arrow)

Microwave Massacre – Wayne Berwick (Arrow)

I bet those who grew up in the pre 90’s would shudder to think what life would be like without such basic necessities as the Internet and mobile phones. Those of us a bit older would have never even conceived such things and if we.. Read More
Scarecrows – William Wesley (88 Films)

Scarecrows – William Wesley (88 Films)

Number 16 in the 88 Films “Slasher Classics Collection” and you can tell that I’m not the biggest fan of the sub-genre as it’s only the 4th I have picked up. The other 3 are all former video nasties and well what you gonna do?.. Read More
